3 use cases of hybrid cloud

  1. 3 Use Cases for Hybrid Cloud
  2. Despite steady adoption of cloud in the enterprise, many companies still continue to work in fits and starts when moving to the cloud from traditional architectures. There are valid IT and business reasons for organizations still opting for applications on hardware owned and managed in-house. One reason is many organizations are finding it difficult to virtualize workloads that aren’t ready to leave physical data centres and non-virtualized infrastructure just yet. Often, these are mission- critical applications that simply can’t compromise on performance. Additionally, they still have large investments in technology, people and processes that are hard to walk away from.
  3. Fortunately, businesses can still advance their cloud strategy by integrating physical infrastructure with a virtual cloud platform to attain a “HYBRID CLOUD STRATEGY” with enterprise-class managed application services. There are a number of situations where businesses can leverage traditional physical infrastructure and virtual cloud services in a hybrid cloud environment that enable application and data mobility, scale and agility, while retaining control of their existing architecture. Let’s dig in three hybrid cloud use cases to consider:
  4. Database Clusters: Virtual cloud services involve a database cluster, running on bare-metal servers in a hosted data centre, while the web/application tier typically utilizes cloud elements. By bridging a large bare-metal database with applications running in the cloud, enterprises can gain the advantages of big iron performance with the cloud’s benefits of agility, rapid deployment, scalability and consumption-based billing.
  5. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery: The flexibility of the cloud makes it easier for enterprises to test replication of dedicated on-premises systems to a virtual environment, giving them greater confidence that the solution will work as planned should a crisis occur. This is in contrast to the state of many existing BCDR efforts; there’s too much fear that conducting failover tests across physical sites will disrupt operations, so they’re rarely done. For many businesses in the mid-market, cost is often a prohibitive factor to establishing a robust BCDR strategy. While cloud financial models do vary across providers, “cold” environments as would be typical for many DR scenarios, can commonly be maintained only for the cost of replication and storage. This is a real game changer enabling many organizations to develop a viable BCDR strategy previously thought impossible.
  6. Scaling Issues: A business may look to the cloud for a certain type of scaling, such as adding more app servers for workload bursts, but struggle with limited time and resources to redesign the whole application for the cloud. By moving certain application tiers from the on-premises infrastructure to the cloud, businesses can achieve a seamless physical-to- cloud hybrid connection, which allows them to address scaling issues without forcing fast, wholesale redesigns for which they may not be prepared.
  7. Hybrid cloud offers organizations the best of both worlds. It enables them to leverage the benefits of both the physical and virtual worlds to create an integrated infrastructure that provides the scalability and rapid provisioning needed to be successful in today’s marketplace.
